Light Fantastic Production Services in the spotlight with a host of movie premieres
UK – Throughout a busy summer, event production specialist Light Fantastic Production Services has been proudly supporting a number of major UK cinema releases. Blockbuster productions The Lion King, Toy Story 4, Aladdin, Yesterday, Good Omens & Once Upon a Time in Hollywood are just a few of the high profile titles which the LFPS team have added to their growing portfolio of premieres.
Speaking about the company’s work in this area, LFPS managing director Rob Myer says: “Over the years our design and fabrication department has produced an immense range of scenic elements for all kinds of outdoor projects. It’s always exciting to receive a brief for this type of production which affords us the opportunity to deliver high quality 3D environments to such prestigious events.”
Working on behalf of clients Limited Edition Event Design, recent premiere projects completed by the team required a variety of custom solutions built specifically to augment the associated media campaigns and reflect the movies branding.
Perfectly complementing the playful, colourful look of Toy Story 4, LFPS built a series of frames to surround the LED video walls which flanked the red carpet. Finished in a gloss blue laminate, the surrounds incorporated over 400 LED cabochons to mimic the fairground theme in the films advertising campaign. The same look extended to a 3D ‘step and repeat’ structure used for cast photos and an interview stage.
The LFPS team was back in Leicester Square to provide decking structures for the UK premier of Disney’s The Lion King. With the premiere screened in both the Odeon and Cineworld cinemas on different sides of the site, the project required the construction of a pair of walkways and raised bridges which allowed guests and celebrities to pass from the central gardens over the perimeter railings and back down to each destination. LFPS also provided the ornate stage structure which formed the centrepiece of the event.
Rob continues: “High profile projects of this nature can sometimes present logistical challenges, particularly when it comes to working in busy Central London locations such as Leicester Square, often in some pretty extreme weather conditions! Our in-house expertise and workshop facilities allow us to respond at speed to ensure every detail is covered and that projects are delivered on time and on budget.”
The creative design, fabrication and engineering skills of the LFPS team have played a role in delivering a host magical red carpet experiences throughout the Summer. Operating in the media spotlight alongside some of the world’s biggest stars, the LFPS blend of technical expertise and meticulous planning continues to provide total client support, ensuring their events are ready to welcome the Hollywood elite.
